My review of the past year with Oak House Studio.....

Hi everyone, thought I'd have a look back at my Design Team projects during 2014, and choose a few of my favourites. If you've followed my journey with Oak House Studio, you'll see that I love getting inky, but I also love clean, elegant cards. I've picked out a few cards which echo these facts, so here they are.....



This was one of my very first cards, made by stamping and layering the sunflower numerous times.....(seemed to take ages, but worth it)




I only used the English Garden stamp here, but  by now, I'd been introduced to the Colour Chemistry inks, and was 'hooked'!




English garden, butterfly set , spray inks and white embossing powder, all from Oak House, of course.
I adore these coloured inks, and I use and recommend them in all my workshops.



Same as above, on this card, but I chose a couple of new ink colours....still love these, and use them almost every time I craft.




One of my clean & simple cards, using Colour Chemistry inks and the daisy stamp.



Then we came to the 'one stamp challenge', using the Walesby hearts. Must admit I was stumped on this one, and procrastinated for days of what to do....it got 'til about 2 hours before the challenge ended when, boom! I came up with these cards, and I loved them....




All inks, stamps and embossing powders from Oak House.
So I went from having nothing in mind, to making a few cards, which sold the minute I put them out at my next craft sale....happy days!


This little card was made for the mini 'one stamp' in October.....I stamped the envelope too, which finished the set off perfectly.
Love this pretty little 'Christmas corner' stamp, and have used it for a lot of my Christmas cards this year.


This set has been one of my favourites, and was my most recent project..... I LOVE the clean look, and of course red, green & white go so well together.
I used the Christmas Wreath Set for this project.

I'm now using Oak House Studio stamps, inks and embossing powders in my monthly workshops, and they're proving to be very popular....


Well, that's it for now, hope to see you all again in 2015, but if not, just enjoy your crafting, and keep blogging your creations.
Merry Christmas,
Barbara
